Customer was an America based company specializing in developing products in home appliance and medical devices. Considering production volume, consistent quality, cost & time saving, rapid tooling and injection molding was the ideal process. In addition, we offered two suggestions to improve the product's fitting also reduce its manufacturing cost.
Electric Discharge MachiningElectrical Discharge Machining (EDM) the back tooling core. To reduce the cost and time of tooling fabrication as well as the injection molding, the two parts were put into one tooling with one cavity of each part.
The Machined Tooling CoreThe CNC and EDM milled front tooling core prior to sanding and texturing. EDM was usually to mill the CNC round corners to straight or sharp ones, also mill the complex features that were out of CNC capability.
Insert MoldingPlacing M2 brass nut for insert molding. Since customer was new to injection molding technique, we offered the design optimizations to place M2 nut well and improve the parts fitting, also reduce tooling cost.
Injection Molded PartsThe injection molded parts for delivery. We not only make prototypes and parts, also help customers in right direction to save money and time, we do believe the customer's success is also our success.
